Message 1: Phono (software for historical phonology)

Date: Thu, 31 Oct 1996 07:57:39 CST
From: Lee Hartman <lhartmansiu.edu>
Subject: Phono (software for historical phonology)

 I have just released a new version of Phono, a DOS-based
program for constructing models of regular historical sound change.
It can be downloaded from the following site:

 http://www.siu.edu/~nmc/phono.html

 Phono is accompanied by a model for Spanish, but it can be
used to model sound change for any language, given a set of rules and
a chronological order in which to apply them.

 This is Version 3.3. Those who are familiar with the previous
version will find the following innovations:

 1) Errors in the "Rule Trace" procedure are now corrected.
 2) "Word Trace" is replaced by a batch mode that records
derivations in a file.
 3) There is now a "prosifier", which can take a line of the
special notation for rules and translate it to a form of English. (If
only it could translate in the reverse direction!)

 I urge researchers in historical phonology to try it out and
let me know the results.

Subject: Chinese Linguistics Home Page Updates

Dear Netter:

The unofficial Chinese linguistics home page on the WWW can now be
found at either of the three sites (please note the new directory name
at our Singapore site):


In USA: http://www.fas.harvard.edu/~whu/China/linguist.html
 http://pears.lib.ohio-state.edu/China/linguist.html

In Singapore: http://137.132.195.189/China/html/linguist.htm


We hope this will serve you better and apologise to those of you who were
unable to access the sites during our restructuring.
